Tom Hiddleston


This uneven musical biopic about the legendary country and blues singer-songwriter Hank Williams, whose short life that ended at age 29 was mired with constant physical pain, infidelity and alcohol abuse. However, it doesn\u2019t come close to illuminating his genius. After being tutored by country star Rodney Cowell, Hiddleston makes a stab at bringing such enduring tunes as \u201cHey Good Lookin,\u2019 \u201c \u201cMove It on Over,\u201d \u201cHonky Tonky\u201d and \u201cJambalaya\u201d to life along with playing a guitar. Holly Williams, the granddaughter of Hank Williams Sr. and half-sister of Hank Williams III, offered praise for the actor\u2019s efforts in a Rolling Stone interview at the time, saying, \u201cTom puts his whole heart and soul into it.\u201d But even with a cast that features Elizabeth Olsen as his long-suffering first wife Audrey, Cherry Jones as his mother Lillie and Bradley Whitford, as song publisher Fred Rose, can\u2019t compensate for writer-director Marc Abraham\u2019s lack of insight into the man.\n","position":1,"url":"https:\/\/www.goldderby.com\/gallery\/best-tom-hiddleston-movies-ranked\/","sizes":"pmc-gallery-xxl":"src":"https:\/\/www.goldderby.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2021\/06\/Tom-hiddleston-movies-I-saw-the-light.jpg?w=620","width":620,"height":360,"pmc-gallery-xl":"src":"https:\/\/www.goldderby.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2021\/06\/Tom-hiddleston-movies-I-saw-the-light.jpg?w=620","width":620,"height":360,"pmc-gallery-l":"src":"https:\/\/www.goldderby.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2021\/06\/Tom-hiddleston-movies-I-saw-the-light.jpg?w=620","width":620,"height":360,"pmc-gallery-m":"src":"https:\/\/www.goldderby.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2021\/06\/Tom-hiddleston-movies-I-saw-the-light.jpg?w=620","width":620,"height":360,"pmc-gallery-s":"src":"https:\/\/www.goldderby.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2021\/06\/Tom-hiddleston-movies-I-saw-the-light.jpg?w=320","width":320,"height":186,"thumbnail":"src":"https:\/\/www.goldderby.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2021\/06\/Tom-hiddleston-movies-I-saw-the-light.jpg?w=150&h=150&crop=1","width":"150","height":"150","fullWidth":620,"fullHeight":360,"pinterestUrl":"https:\/\/www.pinterest.com\/pin\/create\/button\/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.goldderby.com%2Fgallery%2Fbest-tom-hiddleston-movies-ranked%2F1%2F&media=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.goldderby.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2021%2F06%2FTom-hiddleston-movies-I-saw-the-light.jpg%3Fw%3D620&description=Tom%20hiddleston%20movies%20ranked%20I%20Saw%20the%20Light","mime_type":"image\/jpeg","caption_no_shortcode":"This uneven musical biopic about the legendary country and blues singer-songwriter Hank Williams, whose short life that ended at age 29 was mired with constant physical pain, infidelity and alcohol abuse.
